Story

We started Bossy Baker in 2015 as a mobile baking business that sold at pop-up shops and farmers markets. We added an "s" in 2019 when we decided to open a brick and mortar and hire a team. Bossy Bakers is owned and operated by Jeannie and Justin Hall. Jeannie goes bonkers for farms and spends hours researching and experimenting in the kitchen. Justin has whip-smart taste, smoking keyboard fingers, and a day job as a creative director for a local tech company. Not so silent junior partners Ellery (4yo) and Frank (2yo) do the taste testing and crash testing. 

Jeannie and Justin Hall of Bossy Bakers

You all have enjoyed our baked goods at farmers markets, treated yourselves at popups, let us do your weddings, and sustained yourselves at festivals like Indie Craft Parade. We're asked all the time where you can find us permanently, for more allergy-friendly options, to make bread, and to be available more full-time. We're answering the call with a cozy space with separate prep for allergy-friendly food and a more generous and diverse menu. Help us open in October so you get amazing bakes sooner!

Location

The North Hampton Corridor in Greenville, SC
We'll be on Wade Hampton Blvd close to downtown

The North Hampton Corridor has many great things to offer already, and is poised to get a makeover as the gateway to the city. This is the stretch of Wade Hampton Blvd. between its intersection with Pleasantburg and its dead-end at Stone in Greenville, South Carolina. The North Hampton Corridor sees a constant stream of commuter traffic, and we want to provide breakfasts, work lunches, and bread for dinner to these commuters.

We noticed that a bakery was missing from the area. We also see how ready Greenville is for more natural bakery offerings—local and seasonal produce, whole grains, natural leavening, minimal processing—than it has now.

What You'll Find

Our Morning Buns (yep, we hear it) made with a naturally-leavened brioche dough

We love foods that you can feel good eating and that keep you feeling good later. Local produce, naturally leavened breads, balanced desserts, and lots of beans and veggies. You should be able to pick out a cupcake with ingredients that you can pronounce, a sandwich that gives you energy instead of a 1pm slump, and a soda that refreshes you with local fruit flavors without making your teeth tingle from extra sugar. We'll serve you delicious food that your body will love you for eating.

Rewards
